economic policies. >> craig, let me respond if i can. >> yeah. >> we know two things about mitt romney's policies. one, he wants to reduce taxes for rich. and for instance we think they're going to go up for the middle las. and two, he wants to more or less make medicare a voucher program. both of those proposals, and there is no dispute about those are wildly unpopular. so if this gets into a debate about policies, that i think someone of mitt romney's problems. everybody says oh, romney is just a bad candidate. no. the philosophy that he is putting forward any republican candidate this year would be putting forward. it just happens not to be with the public supports. >> richard knows he is not being sincere in terms of characterizing the governor's policy. >> what policies specifically? >> he is certainly, you know, certainly put forward a plan that is more specific an broader based than just tax breaks for the rich. >> i want to focus, not so much on policy here for a minute. but i do want to continue to focus on the debate here. and richard, i want to play a quick moment that presi
in these debates and go after the president, specifically on foreign policy. governor romney hit the president on the response to the consulate attack in libya on his weekly podcast. take a listen. >> we've seen a confused, slow, and inconsistent response to the terrorist attack in libya. a refusal to be frank with the american people about what happened, and a complete failure to explain the growing terrorist threat we face in the region. >> is that the winning line of attack there? >> well, certainly going after the president on what has been one of his strengths in recent years would be one way of going big. foreign policy doesn't tend to be one of the top issues for many voters, even after 9/11, so it won't necessarily help him on the economic front. so i don't know how much it would ultimately yield him, but he's been very tough on president obama on foreign policy, hearing him say, again, something along the lines of what you just plays wouldn't surprise me a bit. >> beth fouhy, thank you so much, and anne kornblut, always a pleasure, and so much so, we'll see you a little bit later this
. that is the difference between us. >> wednesday's debate will focus on domestic policy. romney continues to hamer the president for what he calls a failed foreign policy? an op-ed in today's op-ed journal, romney declared the president is weakening the america's position in the world writing, "by failing to maintain the element of our influence and by stepping away from the allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand in american policy that lax resolve can provoke aggressio aggression. and carriage disorder." after a weekend of debate prep in boston, romney left for denver an wednesday's big event. while the campaign played the game of lowering expectations for the governor. >> obama is a gifted speaker. he has been on the national stage for many years. experienceed debater. he has done the debates before. this is mitt's first time on this stage. >> romney campaign was left to slap itself in the forehead when governor chris christie apparently didn't get the expectations memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of the campaign, i think yo
's debate at university of denver will focus on domestic policy. romney supporters want the gop nominee to show undecided voters how he'll jump start the slow recovery. >> i think he has solutions to our economic problems and that's really what's going to help everyone in this country. >> reporter: colorado is a battleground state that went for president obama in 2008. republicans here say they've already made four times the phone calls at this time four years ago. a new washington post poll gives the president a comfortable 11 point lead when it comes to wing states like colorado. >> i feel like -- swing states like colorado. >> i feel like he actually has a plan where romney i haven't really seen specifics. >> reporter: the poll shows 56% of voters thinks the president will win the first debate. sunday in las vegas he tried to dial back those expectations. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: the president is staying in nevada to study up for wednesday. romney will be hunkering down here in denver. recent polls show mitt romney is trailing in most mu
is attacking president obama's foreign policy record at a campaign rally in colorado. romney said america needs a president who will shape events and not be at their mercy. jan crawford is in denver. jan, what happened to the reset that the romney campaign said they were going to do talking about economy and jobs? instead it seems like they're talking about foreign policy. >> reporter: right. it was foreign policy yesterday. although, romney has said he's going to be drawing a sharper contrast with the president. we sure saw that here in denver. he hit the president hard for saying recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. he also criticized the administration's response to those attacks in libya. >> the world looks at the events going on. they don't see these events as bumps in the road. these are lives. this is humanity. this is freedom. >> reporter: campaigning in colorado, romney was referring to comments the president made to "60 minutes," when he said recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. the white house said the president was talking broadly about events
a lot about his plans to reverse that trend. policies of obama that have not worked. and why romney's plans will work. i think that's the heart and soul of what this election is about. >> you know, he has been talking about this on the stump speech. and i mean, tell me why for mitt romney the economy is not resonating with him more. when you look at the polls and our polling in particular, the president and mitt romney are basically neck and neck on the issue of the economy. a little bit of an edge for your candidate on the issue of unemployment. but why, with all of those statistics that you just rattled off, why isn't your guy, the business guy, doing better on that? >> it is somewhat perplexing given how poorly the president has managed the economy. there's been a lot of promises, and platitudes. but not a lot of results. that's mitt romney's shtick. he's about getting results, as governor of massachusetts and turning around the olympics. i think there's been a couple things. one the democrats got a little bump out of the convention. two, i think the president has done a good job
a bully. >> and with regard to tomorrow, how does mitt romney, given the policy that is he himself has espoused and articulated, how does he warm up women towards him? how does he do that? >> i think the difficulty for mitt romney is the same one he's had all along because he always has at his right flank that part of the party that wants to be aggressive and that wants to be a bully and that sees that as a positive image, right? he always has to have them in his -- on his side. so i think he's afraid of walking too far away from them. he doesn't want to do the etch-a-sketch. it's going to be difficult. you are debating a sit president. you have to come across respectful -- >> a sitting president who, by the way, whose first legislative achievement was to equalize pay for women. >> which the romney campaign at first didn't know how to respond to questions of whether mitt romney would have supported that or not, and i think that clip that you played of ann romney saying i love women is so illustrative because the romney campaign wants to just assert, we're for women without having any s
romney will give a major foreign policy speech this week. romney is taking his message to the air waves. >> i think they want to do their best to keep the people of america from understanding exactly what happened. we expect candor, we expect transparency, particularly to terrorism. >> it's hard to understand how mitt romney thinks this strategy is going to work. romney was hammered for his initial response to the attack in the middle east. he blamed the president for sympathizing with protesters. romney is a 14-point disadvantage for terrorist issues. romney can't pick a strategy and stick with it. the campaign, they used to be all about jobs. the romney slogan was obama isn't working. but then all of a sudden, the campaign was about obamacare and the slogan was "repeal and replace." that didn't work so romney moved on to "we did build that." republicans spent a night at their own convention talking about the new strategy, but that didn't work either. so recently they went with "are you better off." but now they are abandoning it for national security message. they are all over the map
at university of denver will focus on domestic policy. romney supporters want the gop nominee to show undecided voters how he'll jump start the slow recovery. >> i think he has solutions to our economic problems and that's really what's going to help everyone in this country. >> reporter: colorado is a battleground state that went for president obama in 2008. republicans here say they've already made four times the phone calls as this time four years ago. a new washington post poll gives the president a comfortable 11 point lead when it comes to swing states like colorado. >> i feel like he actually has a plan, whereas romney i haven't seen specifics really. >> reporter: the poll also shows 56% of voters think the president will win the first debate. sunday in las vegas he tried to dial back those expectations. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: the president is staying in nevada to study up for wednesday. romney will be hunkering down in denver. recent polls show mitt romney is trailing in most must win states. his team is hoping a good performance on wedne
with the idea that romney actually has a plan. so he has to show a little more leg in terms of policy than he did at the convention. >> his race from the beginning is, i'm not barack obama, he is. >> how is that working? >> but here's the problem, you act as though his policies are actually popular. the vast majority of americans, the polling shows ryan's pick add medicare at front and center, especially in florida -- he has a problem -- >> i'm not arguing that. >> i don't think he's going to be able to avoid. i think you are going to get some substance. i think you need to get some personality. you need to get some spontaneity. i'm not sure either of these two guys is good at spontaneity. if you can fix spontaneity, you've achieved success in politics. >> here's one good piece of news for romney. whatever's happening in sort of the inside washington game, i saw a poll today, i think it was abc news said, 52% of americans expect obama to win. something like 25%, 30% expect romney to win. with the viewers, may not not -- maybe they won't all be watching. >> skewed polls. >> christie is saying,
think it's going to be a domestic policy debate. i'm sure romney's main message is going to be, look, it doesn't have to be this way, okay? we can create jobs, we can deal with the federal deficit, and, yes, we can have a foreign policy where we stabilize these parts of the world if we'll just act in the traditions of bipartisan foreign policy since world war ii. i think that's going to be his basic message. >> in the op-ed there was a phrase used, soft power. i guess what does that mean? what would they have done differently with libya? >> well, here's what should have happened. first, ideally you anticipate the arab spring. if you can't do that, when it happens you set forth a very clear vision of where the region ought to go, in the direction of a constitutional government. you actually get involved in these countries. you learn the elements that want those things. you support them and give them credibility. you identify the elements that don't want those things. you oppose those. you actually use the tools. >> do you think the united states should take a stand in open den dmitri
. >> and now foreign policy has reared its head. we have first of all mitt romney and "the wall street journal" an op-ed, saying that these developments are not as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk, yet amid this upheaval our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them, not moving them in a direction that protects our people or allies. and paul ryan just now on the laura engram radio show, saying this about afghanistan. >> that echos also what john mccain said on "morning joe" today. are they trying to change the skubts to get off -- subject to get off 47% and other missteps and perceived problems in their camp or see a real vulnerability here after benghazi in the way that the white house has handled this? >> if they see a real vulnerability andrea, it's not born out in the public data yet. look at all the data, that goes back months and months the one place where president obama has been strong is on foreign policy and his handling of terrorism. you can argue after benghazi and what's happened in the, you
vague on that point as well. the big problem with romney's bucket plan besides being hilarious is it would only cover $1 to $2 trillion of the $5 trillion tax cut. that's according to the tax policy center. they figured it out. even when romney gives specifics he doesn't answer the questions. e we still don't know how he plans to pay for the tax cuts without hurting the middle class. paul ryan is sticking to his reason for not giving any specifics to chris wallace on fox news. he said he had no time. >> i'm going to give you the time now to answer the question. >> when i start getting the numbers. >> that's right. >> ryan was given the time by bloomberg television. he had a new excuse for not being specific. he says mitt romney can't show congress all of his cards before he gets elected. >> you don't say to congress to democrats you want to work with, take it or leave it. it's all my way or the highway. you say here's my framework. obviously, the numbers add up. we have shone that. >> hang on a second. ryan says they have shown these numbers and shown how they work. folks, they
. >> i would like to see some details both from romney and obama mainly on tax policy. >> reporter: vice president biden charged today, team romney would hike middle class taxes. >> how they can justify raising taxes of the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> reporter: the republicans jumped on that. buried by obama? in colorado, mitt romney took a break for a burrito bowl. >> how are you doing today? >> reporter: romney's number two, paul ryan, kept campaigning. >> the obama economic agenda failed not because it was stopped. it failed because it was passed. >> reporter: that's the kind of zinger sure to be heard tomorrow night. doug, andrew and chris say they hope to hear a lot of substance, too. a debate number one in their battleground state. >> reporter: so how critical will this first presidential debate be? today's nbc news "wall street journal" poll finds 38%, more than a third of voters say this debate and the ones to follow will be quite important or extremely important to their decision about who to vote for. live from denver, i'm steve handelsman, news 4.
a more effective version. as we carry on george w. bush's policies. on israel i think some of the romney charges are accurate. the fact is that the president has gratuitously alienated the prime minister of israel on an issue frankly was not relevant, which was settlements. and i don't think, unlike bill clinton, and george w. bush, that this president has the kind of emotional sensitivity that think is required to create some measure of partnership with the israelis even though netanyahu is a difficult guy. on syria, look, let's be clear. we're coming off the two longest wars in american history. the last thing we need is another military adventure that isn't thought through very clearly. on iran, no matter who is president we have got big trouble coming. israelis rightly need to figure out a way to prevent iran from enriching uranium. the question is, whether or not you can do that short of war? and right now, neither barack obama nor mitt romney, nor benjamin netanyahu have answers to that. so --. >> brought us through some very important regions in the middle east and it is such a bi
for the showdown a in nevada, he landed in las vegas just a few minutes ago for a rally tonight. and mitt romney holds a rally tomorrow and prepares for the debate there as well. so the focus for this first debate will be domestic policy. and jim lara of pbs will be the moderator, the vice presidential debate is the following week, october 11 in kentucky. martha radditz is the moderator. both domestic and international issues will be discussed. and obama and romney face off again in hempstead, new york. and the final debate will be strictly on foreign policy. that's october 22nd in florida. bob schieffer of cbs is the moderator. be sure to catch this first debate life here on cnn. >>> 37 days from election day and new allegations of voter registration fraud, the complaints center around registration drives in florida, nevada, north carolina and colorado. they were performed by a consulting political consulting company hired by the republican national committee called strategic allied consulting. in colorado, a woman who may have worked for the company was videotaped trying to register only mitt
people to trust you. >> romney needs to do something on policy to get people to trust him to reassure people he's not just on the side of the rich. he can't avoid substance completely. he has to say something that gets him over the hump. >> issues divide, values unite. when you're asked a question, talk about your family. talk about an experience -- >> no. >> if that's true, the problem is people have to believe that you believe those values. and i think mitt romney hasn't been able to close the deal on that credibility gap. and the only way to do that is with personal experience or policy that reflects on that rather than just a good line. >> it's independent voters we're talking about middle class voters and low income voters, they're important. independent voters are important too. and independent voters are sick of the lack of bipartisanship in washington. one thing mitt romney hasn't done is gone back to his actual legislative experience of passing bipartisan historic reforms. but now is the moment. now is the opportunity for mr. fix-it, mr. romney who's actually can bring bipart
romney's tax policy, at least not the whole thing because, well, it would take too long. we'll play some of that sound for you in a moment. romney and ryan, they are clear about this. that they would cut everyone's tax rate 20%. cut and dry, 20% rate cut. but, to protect the government's revenue stream, they would have to kill certain deductions and certain loopholes, but they won't be specific, won't say which ones those would be. here is congressman ryan, he starts by trumpeting the tax rate cut. >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> but i have to -- >> no. >> but you haven't given me the math. i don't have the -- it would ta me too long to go through all the math. >> too long to go through the math, he says. but ryan did go on to hint, didn't promise, but he hinted that a romney administration would look at tax loopholes enjoyed by the wealthy. here's that. >> when you close a tax write-off or tax shelter for a higher income person, more of their income is subject to taxation so you can lower tax rates. that's where we begin. where we go is by denyi
the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe they are entitled. >> romney put out two new ads. saying his policies will make life better for voters. susan mcginnis is in washington with all of this this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: hi, terrell. romney is in pennsylvania today, not airing any ads in the state today. this is a state that hasn't supported a republican in nearly 25 years. apparently his visit, according to his aides talking privately is more about fund-raising to try to sort of slow the president's momentum with early voting in many areas under way. early voting began in iowa thursday morning and voters lined up to cast their ballots. president obama's team is feeling confident that most of these early votes will be for the president. >> this many people this early in the morning really shows that there's strong support here in iowa for the president. >> reporter: on thursday, both candidates were in another battleground state. >> how's it going, virginia beach? >> reporter: president obama talked to voters in southern virginia. >> growing our ec
by default. mitt romney and i will give people choice. here is pro growth policy and increase more take home pay . and get people out of poverty in the middle class and get economic and job security. we'll show the country. here's what you need to do to tackle the problems. >> the fact that the message hasn't gotten through. is it your voters or the voters fault. >> it is not the voters's fault. the president is trying to cop fuse and distract people. in the end of the day, i just don't think it will work. >> steve: the president good at confusing the issue. we talk about the double standard with mape stream media and why they don't hold the president at the same standard. >> gretchen: hopefully in the debate they will be asked the same question. and so the american voters can. >> eric: i don't know if they trust given the fact who the moderator is. >> gretchen: they ask the same question it is fair. i am not sure what the format will be. >> eric: probably be the same question. but how does president obama answer it and what would you do differently and mitt romney will come out with his pla

is the economy and domestic policy. mitt romney also looking ahead, though, to the final debate which will focus on foreign policy. there's word this morning that he's going to give a major foreign policy speech soon after that first debate. representative adam schiff is a democrat from california. he's also a member of the appropriations committee and a senior member of the intelligence committee. nice to have you, sir. thank you for being with us this morning. i want to start -- >> thank you. great to be with you. >> appreciate that. i want to start by focusing you on mitt romney's op-ed which focuses on libya. he writes this. the arab spring presented an opportunity to help move millions of people from oppression to freedom. but it also presented grave risks. we needed a strategy for success, but the president offered none. now he seeks to downplay the significance of the calamities of the past few weeks. how devastating do you think is, consering all the focus that has been on libya over the last week, how devastating do you think this is for the president? >> well, i don't think it's devast
clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported as bill clinton said all they're suggesting when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. >> now, the president also visited here in nevada, one of his local campaign offices with volunteers. he said the sessions have been so intense that it feels like homework to him, almost like cramming for a final exam. >> bill: republicans are not giving up. six electoral votes. everyone is important, right, ed? >> that's right. some of mitt romney's key surrogate have been here shadowing the president while he does debate prep. yesterday it was ann romney. i saw matt romney was appearing with marco rubio, one of the rising stars from florida. he's here to help turn out the hispanic vote in navy nevada. i sat down with him for an exclusive one on one. he said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >
since world war ii under this policy. >> another key debate topic, healthcare. romney is defensive about his massachusetts plan. today, the obama camp charged the promise to repeal the president's law will knock millions off the insurance. republicans are circulating a secretly recorded video of a recent meeting among local government officials here in henderson where the president is doing debate prep. officials discuss how implementing the president's law will cost city employees an extra $40 a month. >> a challenge beyond belief. >> in exclusive interview with fox in nevada, senator marco rubio says the video shows the issue will blow up on the president. >> that's the tip of the iceberg. if we have four more years of obama, if obamacare is not repealed we'll have story after story of that one. >> senator rubio is here shadowing the president. he told me he agrees with governor chris christie that romney is a strong debate torso they're still not low -- strong debater, so they are still not lowering the expectation. the message is simple: the country can't afford four more months, let
embraced and will continue to embrace, and the road of optimism and pro-growth policies to get america back to work. that's the choice. >> isn't the problem for mitt romney that people obviously believe, which was the mantra, that the democratic party tried to define that the obama campaign tried to define, that is not a guy for the 100%? this is a guy who frankly favors the wealthy. people like him. and that he doesn't get the cares and worries of the average american? >> i think that's the divide and conquer mentality. mitt romney cares deeply about the american people. he cares deeply about the future of this country and our kids and grandkids. that's way can bring forward in this debate because it will be unfiltered. it won't be split and cut by the media or by whoever is slicing and diesing any recorded messages that have been done before. this is an unfiltered opportunity for governor romney to lay out his optimistic and upbeat plan for the american people and for our great country. that's why i'm so excited about tomorrow night. >> let me ask you about something dave gertz wrote in "
